East Oakland Community Project nurtures the dreams of people experiencing homelessness

DonateWhat We Do

Leading with Compassion

We lead with compassion, and we’re focused on building trust and connection. Effective, dignified care begins with genuinely understanding a person as who they are, not just what happened to them.

Honoring Personal Stories

We listen and pay close attention to the unique stories of each of our clients, as their experiences of homelessness are varied and complex.

Maintaining Our Anchor in Oakland

We’ve stayed rooted in Oakland for 30+ years, with a steadfast commitment to our home neighborhood, while also providing dedicated care to individuals and families across Alameda County.

Healing Our Community

As a Black-led organization, we’re working to heal generations of racial and economic disparities through personalized support, because we know that a “one size fits all” approach only perpetuates systemic racism and poverty.
